OH GOO! We had so much fun today with our Goo! It was so simple to make and my kids played with it for over an hour!! It is so neat how it switches back and forth from a liquid to a solid! Even my 12 year old was amazed with it! It becomes a solid when you squeeze it, but "melts" if you just  lay it in you hand and pours off of your hand like a liquid!


All You Need is:

  • 16-oz box cornstarch
  • water
  • food coloring
  • bowl

Empty the box of cornstarch into a bowl.
Add 1-1/2 cups of water.
If you would like to color your goo, add about 15 drops of food coloring.
Mix the goo with your hands.
Have fun!





  1. I remember this stuff from when I was a kid. I was at an expo for kids, and one of the booths was showing this stuff off. I made it several times as I grew up, and whenever I'm using cornstarch to thicken things, I still play with it.

  2. I remember doing this when I was younger. I loved how it was so stiff when you squeezed and then just melted through your fingers. Totally forgot about this. Will have to do this again for my Grand Daughter & Grandson. Thanks so much for the reminder :)
